Make your own chocolate syrup

This summer we are having camp Shor!  And as part of the fun activities we do, we do a lot of children friendly recipes (and pre-school crafts – if you know fun ones, let me know).  The following chocolate syrup is easy and delicious.  It’s from the Scharffen Berger’s cookbook (Scharffen Berger is a boutique […]


Avocado and Apple salad

One way to perfect a dish is to showcase all 5 “tastes” – salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami (which refers to a type of fermented taste).  When you use all 5 tastes this sometimes makes for a delicious “symphony” of flavors, but if the dish is out of balance the flavors could quickly turn […]


The best doughnuts Ever

Friday we had to make some lunch, and no one knew what they wanted – we tried many options.  However, sometimes we need something special and fun (and preferably easy).  From our trip to the library we got a Children’s quick and easy cookbook – which has lots of recipes of things I used to […]


Make your own ice cream

Hello – on this fine Sunday morning we wanted to do something fun and have a special treat.  Nava had made her own ice cream at camp – and so we tried it ourselves.  It is easy and a yummy (relatively) healthy treat.  And we got our new Nikon CoolPix P7000 – like I know […]
